Question:

Is using antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer sufficient to sterilize my wash basin before shaving?

I've been using this combination of products to do a quick wash of my bathroom sink before shaving, because I don't want heavy duty cleaning product chemical residue getting in the water after I fill the sink I fill the sink with hot water to use for shaving. The mixture is;antibacterial soap (two squirts) and hand sanitizer (1 full squirt) on a sponge that is used for only for this purpose. I wipe the mixture over everything (sink, handles faucet, outer basin, etc), leave it for 5 mins and then wipe clean with hot water and a sponge (the same sponge rinsed free of soap)Is this sufficiently sterilizing my bathroom sink?(Note: the sink being addressed is my own private bathroom sink - common area bathroom is sterilized with ajax/comet cleaner and bleach followed by being sprayed down with disinfectant after primary rinse and wipe down)

Answer:

Yes, keep up the good work.

That is way too much cleaning. You may be OCD. Just clean your basin once a week with a little ajax or whatever you like and then rinse it out and your done. No need of daily sanitizing.

Yes. That should sterilize it.
